NEW LIFT RECORD FOR CRANSTON.
Richmond's Jody Cranston set the World Association of Benchers and Deadlifters' Canadian Bench Press Record for his division at the third annual Pacific Open Powerlifting Contest in Olympia Wa.
Cranston pressed 375 pounds to win the 181 lb. division--well over double his bodyweight.
The victory qualifies him to represent Canada at WABDL World Championships in Las Vegas on Nov.22.
